What This Drone Footage Captured At This Abandoned Baltimore Mall Is Truly Grim

Baltimore’s Old Town Mall is nearly 200 years old now (originally opened in 1818). Throughout the last two centuries, it’s seen a few revitalizations as well as declines. The rise and fall of this Charm City spot mirrors its surroundings, as it seems no matter how many times it crumbles, we try to make it whole once more.

Plans are reportedly underway to turn this massive abandoned area into a mix of office buildings, apartments, and retail space. For now, this historic spot weathers away day by day, year by year.
